An operating system written in javascript was a really bad idea in my opinion.

Did you just lift all these off some random "top 10 worst operating systems" list? Because barely anyone here even knows what OS/360, ITS and SCO Open Desktop are. It's even more pressing when you realise that virtually nobody here was born when those operating systems ruled computers. You also don't really know what you're talking about either. What is this "operating system written in javascript"? You don't write operating systems in JavaScript! Java and JavaScript are both two entirely different languages and they have different purposes!

As for the topic at hand, I'd probably say Windows 8.

I think that the creator of this topic didn't include Windows 8 because he's using it! :shock:

windows 7 deserves to stay supported for many many years but I'm afraid that's not going to happen ...

Tbh I really don't like the Apple operating systems just because of the layout. Much happier with Android and Windows (7)

im the game designer here and i'd just like to tell you that macs are trash and are cool for media production/video and audio editing but literally nothing else
fuck you xcode
fuck you ios development being restricted to owning a god damn mac i don't want to pay $1000 for something shitty my computer right now barely cost $700 and outclasses most in the same category that aren't used

that and some shit's pretty backwards like i like that it's got bash and it's got some classic tradition in it but then it tries to be all modernist and cool and like, it's just not for me

i'm infinitely more of a win10 and linux kind of guy; i like both, linux is cool as shit in its core and the kinds of operating systems you can get are sick, software support is getting better and better, pacman is the best package manager to date, windows 10 takes the best of windows 7 and yes, the best of windows 8 (say what you will there were indeed some good steps in its design philosophy but it was too mobile-oriented)

for pure programming tho always go for linux because i swear you'll get nothing done playing things like witcher 3
to add to the topic, windows ME is the worst operating system
or the shit north korean pcs use

there's a reason this comic exists

for all you kids saying windows 8 was the worst decision, i mean, you've got some water because it really was a bit misguided with what it was targetting, but it certainly wasn't the worst OS, that still goes to ME for shitty compatibility with everything, being bloated, running like shit no matter what, being a mostly irrelevant OS in the first place

and i mean it's not like 8 was this bad:
Image

among other things, as well

the point is, windows 8 was actually pretty good for the mobile and 2in1 users, just not really so much for the average desktop user, which is a fair point to criticize it for; i mean windows' biggest base is the desktop base, after all
and for that at least it actually worked for what it wanted to, it wasn't just inherently broken, just a bit bizarre that led to 8.1 coming out and 10 being the apology plus fusion

say what you will win10 is pretty solid overall and runs fine

No, you can actually write an operating system in javascript.

I really wish that it didn't exist, but it does.

There was a top ten list that had an old operating system that had no security or pass word system on it (AKA anyone could access your account). It was where many hackers started.

Linux isn't actually too bad. It's just catered more to programmers/developers and less to the average Jim who wants to go on and check his Facebook and read the news

Operating System uses:
Mac: Media production (music, movies etc)
Linux: Programming
Windows: Everything else
